COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Andechser Weissbier Hefetrüb.

When summer is on the way and the days invite you to swim, ramble, climb, or simply enjoy the outdoors, you will discover that an Andechser Weissbier Hell is just the right thing to quench your thirst. Since Saint Joseph’s Day on 19 March 1993, Andechs Weissbier Hell has found many new friends. Untreated and bottled in its natural state of yeasty turbidity, this is a top fermented beer for the epicure. Its light honey colour makes it an immediate eyecatcher. Then there’s the opalescence and fine structure of the yeast turbidity. At the same time, the creamy, fine pored head invites you to get to know this light Weissbier from the Holy Mountain. You’ll need two takes to enjoy the aromas to the full. First, distinctive fruity aromas like banana and honeydew melon come to the fore, followed by fine cloves. Andechser Weissbier Hell is a very tangy, refreshing treat with the conviction of a full, soft body. It concludes on a finely balanced interplay of light sweet honey and a delicate acidity with undertones of bitter hoppiness that quickly subside into a harmonious aftertaste. A Weissbier that embodies a slice of the Andechs lifestyle: finely yeasty, tangy, and sparkling, it refreshes and renews the thirst for more (original extract: 12.5%; abv: 5.5%).

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 500ml bottle. Aroma is very fruity (slightly banana), yeast. Appearance is cloudy orange with a hughe white head. Taste is citrus and sweet. A very nice mouthfeel with a long sweet finish. Overall one of the best Hefeweizen I know.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The appearance is typical of the style. Straw yellow in color with a dense, white head. Fantastic aroma with banana, clove, spices, wheat. Refreshing flavor. Light and soft on the palate. Poundable. Superb balance. I would love to try this side by side with Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, as these are without question the two best examples of a German hefeweizen I have ever had. Highly recommended.

Originally had this on tap at the kloster, but I bought a bottle afterward to confirm my suspicions - this is the best Hefeweizen I’ve ever had. Pours bright, hazy gold with a pillowy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of lemon peel, yeast, fruity esters, slight banana, clove, and bubblegum. Taste is fairly dry, very crisp, and the wheat is distinct. Totally appropriate carbonation and body. Worth the hike.

Cloudy yellow/orange with a fluffy light tan head. Beautiful yeast, fresh wheat, with orange, lemon, a hint of clove, and banana in the aroma. Most interesting for me is the abundant ’pear bubblegum’ note. Lightly sweet, but has a faint lemon tartness to balance everything perfectly. Medium light body, active but creamy carb, with just a whisper of hop bitterness in the finish. Fantastic, old-school, German hefe. Definitely one of my favorites.

Tap @ Andechs am Dom, Munich. Nice glowing orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Nice banana, good clove, a little spicy aroma. Quite nice citrusy, delicious banana, clove, somewhat spicy wheat flavor. Really a nice Hefeweizen.

Draft at The Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a cloudy light orange colour with a big, fluffy white head. Full aroma of bananas, cloves and other spices. Citrus and juicy fruit flavours with yeasty notes. Pleasant and balanced palate of wheat, dry grains and grass with lingering fruity sweetness. A fantastic example of the style.

Very tasty Weissbier. I had visited Andechs a few years ago and really enjoyed the beer I had in their biergarten. The bottle pouts a nice cloudy yellow with a small white head. It has a light wheat taste and goes down smooth. Delicious beer.
